I read the elo… glicko is a bit complicated but good adaptations to elo might be simpler and better. glicko is useful to take a look at RD



Glicko is an improvement upon ELO as it takes into account a variable deviation. What we need for games like ours is for a system of equations that can consider things like:

  • The number of players involved.
  • The probability of winning given certain starting positions.
  • Mitigation of being paired with poor teamates.
  • Mitigation of gaining points because of unfair play against higher rated players.
  • Mitigation against affects of new players climbing up the ranks too quickly.

Oh yes I remember two times where the winner literally received 100+ points at once.


Just had a possible idea for alternate way of rating that can be easy to use in chess with a lot of players: all players in winning sector get score of 1, all players of losing sector get 0, and only the K changes. So even if they get same pure result, the impact is changed to make the changes accurate
